I'm not very good at making French toast, and let's face it, it's kind of a bother to have to soak the bread and griddle it... so messy! I've got the art of making waffles and pancakes down, but when I'm craving French toast I like to eat out -- which makes IHOP's new dish just perfect for me!
IHOP's latest special, limited edition dish, Double-Dipped French Toast, looks and tastes as good as it sounds. It comes in 2 yummy flavors; I've tried the Strawberry Lemon and I can't wait to go back and try the Cinnamon Sugar.
Today I took the boys to IHOP and ordered the Lemon Strawberry Double-Dipped French Toast. Here's a closer look:
The tartness of the lemon cream goes perfectly with the sweetness of the strawberries. The vanilla batter coating keeps it moist and chewy on the inside, just the way French toast should be, while the cornflake/oatmeal coating makes the French toast crispy on the outside, and gives it a yummy crunch. There's probably more strawberry sauce on the plate than I would prefer, but fortunately it's on the plate, not on top of the French toast, so it doesn't make everything soggy. You can also request to have the sauce served on the side!
The Double-Dipped French Toast is served as part of a combo meal. You get 2 slices of French Toast, then choose your combo meal. The most basic consists of 2 eggs (cooked however you want them), 2 slices of sausage or bacon, and hash browns (I chose 4 slices of sausage because YUM). Prices start at $7.99!
Double-Dipped French Toast is only available until September 20, so make sure you get to IHOP to try it before then!
